The proposed Hampstead Garden Suburb Cultural Hub
Please let us know your views!
The magnificent Church of St Jude-on-the-Hill lies at the heart of Hampstead Garden Suburb. This Grade 1 Listed Building may be one of Lutyens’s masterpieces, but its poor condition means the church is on Historic England’s “At Risk” Register.
The church intends to apply for Heritage Lottery Funding to help fund essential restoration work, but also to create a heritage and visitors’ centre for the Suburb itself. This will be located in a large chapel with its own access from Central Square, and will celebrate the diverse heritage of the Suburb, its architectural gems, its place in the garden suburb movement, the role of Dame Henrietta Barnett and much more. The plans also include the creation of additional community and studio space. For more information about the proposals, click here.
It is important that the church consults about these proposals as widely as possible. Please let us know what you think, by taking just five minutes to complete a short online survey.
The link to the survey is here. Do please tell us your thoughts – tell us what you like about the proposals and tell us what you think should change.
The survey will remain open until 17 November.
